Liaison office finally got back to me.
Since engineering is not available at a distance directly through DCS, I can actually apply for fulltime engineering studies, at a non-subsidized rate, through DCS.
This means that I would remain within the DCS while attending the engineering...
I'm currently a Cpl in the reserves.
I'm finishing off a Civil Engineering Technology diploma at Humber as well as working on a B.Sc part-time through the division of continuing studies at RMC.
Upon completing my diploma I wish to move onto university to complete a B.Eng.

Victory in Afghanistan, complete victory, where a democratic government is able to maintain the country with stability, is a long way away. To achieve this aim, in many ways an ideology within the country needs to be developed so that the government and its citizens...
